Was the ending aiming at super mario, when toad tells you the princess is in another castle. Plus this game ended so quickly i wanted it to last forever

Now I know this was an LD, so this isn't a criticism but...

If I were to guess, I'd say that somehow you're miscalculating mouse location?  The UI is barely functional (At least for me) and where I click sometimes works perfectly, and sometimes has only a passing relation to what happens.  Anyhow, it's only a guess.  Good luck cleaning this up... if you decide to do that.  Or if not, then good luck with whatever other endeavors you choose.  :)

Can't interact with inventory besides "use" which doesn't even work?
